One Hot Iron
I’ve had this babe for over nine months and she has been amazing.
The way she glides over you and makes you feel great is second to none.
So if you have an Iron fetish, Verve 65 is your girl, I'm very happy with it's a great iron for the price. Has all the usual features - temp setting, steam and spray, but also has the beeping sound to tell you it's going to turn itself off soon!
Great Iron best I have ever had
its great works well with the steam and gets creases out beautiflly love the heat deal and it glides well on al lthe different fabrics
I don't know why I havent changed my irons to the new versions it makes life easier I actually like ironing now
it has a good warranty as well and is not heavy
I use this product everyday!
This iron works like a dream! It presses clothes so well, doesn't splatter water all over clean clothes, and cools down quickly! I love that it has the heat sticker, which tells you when the iron is safe to touch anywhere. It also holds a lot of water, which means I am not constantly filling it up!
Can't fault it
This iron can be summed as completely average. It heats up to medium in about ten minutes. It effectively sprays steam. The water spray comes out from the front and does what it needs to do. The power cable is braided, and out the box it comes with a small cup for filling the iron with water. The amount of water it holds is sufficient enough for a small family load of clothes. Not incredibly powerful, but for how cheap it is, there's really not much faulting it.
Making ironing easy!!!
I got my sunbeam verve 2 1/2 years ago! Fantastic iron that heats up quickly and irons smooth and removes wrinkles
Okay, does its job.
I needed an iron but didn't want to spend too much. I bought one of these from Kmart as it was on special. So far I have not had an issue with it. It does what it's designed for. It's not a heavy duty iron so I find for badly creased clothing I need to go over several times to smooth away the creases. A tad annoying but for the price I paid, I certainly cannot complain. I've had mine for just over a year and it still works perfectly.
If you want a cheap iron that does the job, this is a good option.
This is everything!
I work in hospitality so it is important that my shirts always look neat and not wrinkled, as I am studying I'm always in a rush for work, the sunbeam verve platinum heats up quickly and works amazingly! It leaves my clothes looking great and feeling nice and warm to wear, woild recommend this!

Revising my initial 5/5 down to a 1-2
Update: Firstly, I'm pretty sure we purchased at Myer, not David Jones - sorry for the misleading information.
Secondly, after our initial elation, ours stopped working about 3-4 weeks after my first review - that is, it refused to heat up.
After calling Sunbeam and being told the quickest way forward was to take it back to Myer, that's what I did. The exchange process was simple and relatively quick. I asked the salesperson to turn the replacement iron on to check that it would heat up, which it did very quickly - much more quickly than ...the one I was replacing initially had. I thought "Hurrah - problem solved!" and set off home. About 6 weeks in the steam shot reduced to a watery ejection from the base of the iron that soaks the fabric I'm ironing. I've checked that the iron is heated up properly and the settings are correct. This one's going to have to go back. Again :-(. So disappointing. This is now the fourth consecutive Sunbeam Iron I've had to return in the last 6 months, and I'm sorry to say that my faith in a once very reliable product has now been exhausted. I'm not sure about any current models other than the two I've experienced (2 x Verve 6250; and 2 x Verve 6550..with Choice giving the 6550 a very clean bill of health) but I'm starting to think that the one good 6550 that Sunbeam made was the one tested by Choice, and that the rest of us have the "normal" quality ones. I should have read the rest of the reviews before purchasing, and not held so much in faith. I've given the iron a "2" two because it does heat and iron well as long as you don't want to use the steam shot (which sadly is never for me, as we don't have any synthetic fibre clothing). If you want to use the extra steam, view the rating as a "1" :-(

Great steam, irons cotton business shirts really well
Fast heat up, great steam generation, removed all wrinkles with ease on cotton business shirts.
Really a pleasure to use. I just returned a Braun iron TexStyle 7 because it shot steam out the front and burnt me and didn't iron properly.
I have had several sunbeams which have been great. I only had to replace my last sunbeam because I dropped it.
Button popped out.
The iron was running fine but unfortunately I had the same experience. Button popped out and now it is useless. I had for six months and it can't be fixed. I am really frustrated with this product easy to break down. Definitely I will never buy this brand again. Didn't last long at all
Waste of money
Had Sunbeam before & was happy so bought this model. The steam button popped out after 18 months sparing use. It is now unusable as water gushed out the bottom at random moments. It felt unsafe to use. It is now out of guarantee period but I will not be buying another Sunbeam iron.
Slightly let down, cheap & works ok but I wish I've spent another $50 & bought a better iron....
- Cheap and it's heated up quick, sprayed fine.
- Alarm/beeping if it's been idle for a while when it's on (which is great feature for me!)
- Leaks/drips water during the ironing & idle (Look others have same problem)
- Steam function is not as good as my other iron (Philips)
- Cheap Plastic knob for the water door - break easily.
Not sure if I'll purchase Sunbeam iron in the future - probably just spend
another $50 to get other brand and be more satisfied with it..

Doesn't work straight out of the box
Well i bought this today to replace my faithful $12 bilo iron that served me for close to 10 years until I dropped it on the slate floor! Thinking I'd spent four times the money i was expecting this to be a reasonable iron. As it turned out the steam shot and spray function didn't work out the box and then one of the buttons fell off, had no choice but to use tonight and it dribbles as well. Surely they've been making irons for long enough to make one that can make it through the warranty period?
This is the 2nd of these irons I have purchased in the last 12 months, the small plastic knob that locks the water door closed has broken off on BOTH irons, now when ironing I cannot fill past 1/4 full or water leaks out all over the garments. Cheaply made, I won't be buying another, I've learned my lesson.
Very poorly made.
Two years old and the steam and spray buttoms on top have popped out. Not a very safe or reliable iron to use. Can't use steam function now as the steam button won't stay in nor can we use the spray function because the spray button won't stay in.
Disappointed - supposed to no drip- drips constantly
Purchased this model to replace my old sunbeam iron. This model drips on my clothes, I first thought it was faulty and returned it to the store. The buttons on the spray and water functions lift off too easily and kept coming off. The replacement one did the same thing.
Always dribbles from front of tank. Do not know why it would somtimes throw earth leakage switch. While ironing today acrid smoke started spewing out with the iron melting internally and while power still on it seperated I was in danger Poisonous gasses filled the house till I could get it out the door The iron was in the correct working order at the time.

Breaking Plastic Tab to Water Inlet Cover - TWICE
This is the second time we have purchased this iron. First time (was probably the previous model) we had it for quite some years with no problems, however the plastic tab that locks the water inlet door in place broke off then lead to extreme water leakage. All OK at the time - assumed plastic had broken down after length of time we've owned it. After 8 weeks of owning this current iron, same thing has happened again - broken plastic tab to lock water inlet door and once again - water leakage - only after 8 WEEKS!!!
What a let down
I am so glad i checked in to see these reviews, my iron leaks, splutters and leaves great water splodges everywhere, even if I only 1/4 fill it. It is not old, but today I have decided to replace it, I cannot be bothered with it's poor performance any more, and obviously this performance is standard for this iron. Will check out other brands and avoid Sunbeam.
A disappointment, not good value for money & poor steam function.
Bought this to replace another Sunbeam iron. On the first use it dripped water when I tried to use Steam so I took it back and got it replaced. The second one was a bit better but after about 6 months use you would need to pump the steam button multiple times, let it drip a little then it would usually steam after that. After about 20 months the manual steam function was fairly useless - most times it would just pour water out the base when you tried to use it. Other observations are that the iron is poorly shaped where the cord wraps around so...it doesnt stay in place very well. After owning 4 Sunbeam Irons now I can the mid range models are only really good for about 2 years use and the non stick coatings are not very durable no matter how careful you are around zips and buttons. On the plus side it heated up evenly and fairly quickly and was well balanced and not too heavy. The automatic off function worked as described right to the end.
